Remove and reinstall the ribbon. Also, while the ribbon is out, try spinning the knob on it.

Stop Ejection of printing paper roll after printing in dot matrix printer


I assume you are printing on roll paper, but printer acts like it is printing on cut sheet paper. When finish the page, it ejects it, but it is not a page, it is a roll and the paper keeps unrolling, right? There have to be a lever that swithes between cut sheet paper and roll paper. Turn it to the oposite direction and the problem should be fixed.

Might be your gap is set to high. try moving the right lever from A to B for example and see if it clears it out. Also might be your parallelism, you will find to hex screws on the right and left of the platen assy that u can adjust. This will balance out the shuttle if one side is printing to light and another is printing to dark. Rory 708-597-4222

Printing quality is very poor


The print quality of dat matrix printers depends upon the printer ribbon. If the ribbon is old or worn out then the print will be very light. In this case replace the ribbon.
Dot matrix printers are very old technology and I suggest you get a Inkjet printer or a laser printer.
Dot matrix printers cannot match the print quality of Inkjet and laser printers.

Custem size paper are not creat


am using an Epson LX-300+II dot matrix printer in Windows XP. I am
trying to print checks that are tractor feed 8.0" x 3.66". I added the cusotm
paper size in the print server and it is saved correctly, however, when I try
to print, the print properties dialog does not show the paper size. In fact,
there are many paper sizes in the print manager that do not show up in the
list of available paper sizes.

I have limited option for my TVSE HD-745 Dot


Paper size and pagelength are normal set by the incoming print datastream.

You can usually set this up from within the application you are using to generate the print datastream.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Prints one side faded one sige legible the other side as if the printhead has a problem


Epson Dot matrix DFX 8000


Due to printer head firing is not proper.

The Prnter need servicing and once serviced it will be alright.

Sometimes the Printer Ribbon might have not rotating and the print will not be visible on the left and at right side it is bright.

Better consult the local printer hardware enigneer and settle this iseeu.

Put the original and best gsm paper in the printer, when prining job is iniated.
